Sworn to protect a powerful artifact, Arden of Throckmorton is reluctant to carry out her duty until the relic sends her nearly eight hundred years into the future. Her only way home is to find it. Modern England is no place for a medieval maid.
Hawkins Arlington is a prominent medievalist and just the man to help her, once he gets over the whole time travel and magic nonsense. Besides, the chance to study a real medieval woman is too brilliant to pass up.
But when a villain from the past appears, Arden and Hawk race to find the artifact first, risking their lives, their homes and their reputations. And if they find it, can Arden discover what her heart wants, and will Hawk be able to let her go?
